Recharge Metals Limited (ASX: REC) has received further positive drill results from the company’s Brandy Hill South Project located within the Archaean Gullewa Greenstone Belt in Western Australia.
These are the final assays from the extensive field programme completed during 2022 and have encouragingly extended the known limits of the copper mineralization delineated to date at the Brandy Hill South Prospect.
The strike length of copper mineralisation intersected to date exceeds 500m. Mineralization remains open in all directions.
“Recharge is encouraged by the significant widths of copper mineralization encountered in this last drill program. The Brandy Hill South Prospect has been a hub of activity since listing in October 2021, and in this short space of time we have delineated copper mineralization over a strike length of 500m,” Executive Director, Felicity Repacholi-Muir, said.
“Recharge has engaged an industry consultant to complete an independent high-level review of Brandy Hill South’s copper potential, which will help guide Recharge’s exploration strategy.”
The final programme for the calendar year comprised eight drillholes for a total of 2,370.8m, including three Reverse Circulation (RC) drillholes and five diamond drillholes with RC precollars.
The diamond drillholes were designed to test electromagnetic (EM) conductors identified from the downhole transient electromagnetic (DHTEM) surveying of earlier drillholes. All holes intercepted a mafic- ultramafic complex, intruded by felsic porphyry, including extensive zones of massive, semi-massive to disseminated sulphides.
Next Steps at Brandy Hill South
A leading industry consultant has been engaged to undertake a high-level and independent review of the copper potential of the Brandy Hill South Project. The initial review of the existing drill data, petrography, micro XRF and PXRF has supported the potential for the Brandy Hill South Prospect to represent a porphyry copper system.
In line with this, it is anticipated that an Induced Polarisation (IP) survey may be useful to detect further disseminated sulphide mineralization, which has been successfully employed at similar projects.
The independent review will guide Recharge’s exploration strategy and the company looks forward to updating shareholders with results of the review as it becomes available
